Organizing for Travel

With vacation time just around the corner, now is the time to start planning what you want to take with you. Many items are now restricted on airplanes, so you need to get a list first thing in order to know what is and what isn't allowed. There are a few things you can have ready ahead of time that will end up saving you valuable minutes as you're doing your final packing. Below is a list of some things you might want on your list. Most of these items, you can have ready to place in your luggage when you begin to add clothing, etc.


Basic First Aid Supplies

Add to this First Aid list as you think of things you might or can use. Better to have them and not need them than the other way around.


Other Useful Items

I print out several lists and keep one in every piece of luggage, noting which piece of luggage things are in when possible. You will not believe how much time this is going to save you in searching for what you need when you need it. Keep in mind that everybody's list is going to be a little bit different. Only you can predict what your family might want or could possibly need. You'll be adding and deleting from this list every year for the rest of your life, so don't feel that you need to carve it in stone.

When my children were kids, we would visit grandma 3-4 times a year and stay for a week at a time. With 3 kids and eventually 5 kids, I found it a necessity to make a list of things I needed to take for each child to be sure I had everything.

For small/short trips I lay out each outfit out, on the bed. I put shoes, socks, accessories, and even undies out for each day. I put each outfit on a hanger. Using zipper bags I put all my accessories and everything else in the zippered bag, then cut a small whole, and hang it over the hanger.
